[applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga

[cheering and applause] >> i'm craig robinson, michelle obama's big brother, father of four and head coach of oregon state university's men's basketball team. any seven footers out there, give me a call. >> craig and i come from different states. we've had different upbringings and, as you can see, we have different perspectives on the world. >> but no matter how different we may seem, we share a set of values our parents gave us. values the same in chicago as they are in honolulu. a willingness to work hard, a commitment to education and the responsibility to look out for each other. they're the values at the core of how barack and michelle have lived their lives, raised our nieces and led this country as president and first lady of the united states. >> four years ago at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i didn't grow up with much in the way of wealth, but we were blessed with a mother who taught u
, it will be in tomorrow. i read it. you quote michelle obama at t democratic convention in her speech, she said being president reveals who you are. you say so do campaigns and you're not happy with what's being revealed about mitt romney? how so? what do you think this tape reveals? >> well, there's a lot of us who have been waiting for a long time for some seminal moment for mitt romney to reveal his character and unfortunately, i'm afraid that this tape is exactly what that does but not in the way we had hoped for. it's getting harder to support him, getting harder to defend him. you know, i talked a lot about how i remember in september 2000, things were difficult, the dark days of september, and easy to bounce back, but when you start casting off half the country as victims, that causes a lot of pause for independents and people like me who cross the line in the mid '90s to join the republican party because of ideas like compassionate conservatism. i don't hear any of that from mitt romney. i'm trying to figure out what the broader vision and narrative is that takes care of the least among us. w
and their respective wives, jill biden and michelle obama. one key for the president here is to try to convince independent voters to stick with them but that hill got a little bit higher to climb with the jobs numbers coming out this morning, 96,000 jobs provided during the month of august, for every job provided four other americans gave up looking for work. here is the president speaking last night at the convention, encouraging people to stick with him. >> if you buy into the cynicism that the change we fought for isn't possible, well, change will not happen. if you give up on the idea that your voice can make a difference then other voices will fill the void, the lobbyists and special interests, the people with the ten million dollars checks who are trying to buy this election. >> reporter: never mind that the democratic national convention just like the republican convention was chalked full with special interest and corporate interest paying for musicians, parties, booze, you name it. one difficulty tee is that the mitt romney campaign is releasing a barrage of attack ads in eight swing
their lives 11 years ago today. in just a moment president obama and the first lady, michelle obama, will observe a moment of silence on the south lawn of the white house. just to give you a sense of the remembrance going on today, at 9:30 the president will head over to the pentagon for a wreath laying service where he will make remarks along with leon panetta and martin dempsey. vice president joe biden will be in pennsylvania to honor the passengers who took action against the hijackers on flight 93. there will be a reading of the names of the passengers and crew and the vice president will deliver brief remarks. >> and barack obama and michelle obama coming out right now, mika. obviously this president has faced the challenges of -- >> exactly 46 past the hour. the moment of silence. ♪ ♪ >> john meacham, this president now carries the tremendous burden that the last administration carried, to hold true to the words that so many americans spoke 11 years ago, never again. and what a burden that is for him. >> never forget. you talk to presidents. you hear president obama talk
are just a few days away from official proceedings beginning on tuesday, september 4, with michelle obama, the first lady of the united states. september 5, we have bill clinton and others. our great keynote speaker, the mayor of san antonio, and others will be taking to the stage. they will talk about the president's vision for the next four years. the screens behind me will allow them to deliver that message in a visually engaging way, both to the people in the arena and the millions watching at home or on line. today is really exciting for me. i started working on convention planning almost three years ago. i moved here, as i said, last june, to oversee this process. it is hard for me to thank so many people who have worked tirelessly on this. i would like to thank, first and foremost, our staff, and our partners at the host committee here in charlotte, for all their incredibly hard work to make to the possible. it really has been an amazing ride. i thank our construction management and his partners, and so many others, event sphere, neighboring concepts, and other great partners. i al
-election. michelle obama did as bill clinton and former michigan governor, jennifer granholm. this president is using socialist euphemisms, fair share, fair shot, dividing america, not using hope and change rhetoric he was so powerful for using four years before and able to get elected by such a wide march begin then. this is frustrating true believers the dowds of the left really are. whatever they may have felt four years ago they have been backing this president up every turn. >> she was never a true wleefr. martha: let me interject here. in the ericson piece written by one of his reporters at red state he talks about whether or not the president is relevant. goes to issues showing up in this maureen dowd piece which is whether or not he was one making the change that he was seeking. and when you look at bob woodward's book it gives a couple of examples that time nancy pelosi was talking to him about the budget. according to woodward's reporting she put the president on mute so that the people in the room could continue their conversation while he was espousing something. she says that is not true

to go. >> that matches, when i interviewed michelle obama on the campaign trail, they really don't want this to change them. they really don't want to change as people, as individuals. >> too bad. >> it's impossible. >> it is completely impossible, isn't it, jon meacham, especially these days? >> oh, yeah. but the drama of almost every president in recent times has been that they feel that to whom much is given, much is expected so that he'll find a way to serve in some broadway. i would strongly -- i would suspect that obama would look very hard at the clinton global initiative and what president carter's done. >> the idea is that he's going to go do nothing, his interactions with the world are going to return to more normal -- people are just going to treat him like another guy kind of thing. >> well, someone bear hugged him. there you go. the piece is in the new issue of "vanity fair." michael lewis. thank you very much. >> great piece in "vanity fair." make sure you go out and get it. >>> still ahead, new video from vie row where fresh clashes are erupting between police and protest
